Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Kodiaks at home for two When you are 9-0 the next step is 10-0 wouldn't you think? Well, that's what faces the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks tonight when they meet Calgary Mount Royal College Cougars in Alberta College Athletic Conference action at the LCC. Kodiaks meet the Cougars at 8:30 following a gals encounter at 6:30. Saturday afternoon, if their winning streak is still intact, the Kodiaks will go after number 11 without a defeat against Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans Saturday evening. Game times change Saturday with the Kodiettes hitting the floor at 1 p.m. and the Kodiaks at 3 p.m. Kodiaks, thus far this year in conference play, have yet to be hard pressed. Coach Tom Kan-en isn't saying so in actual words, but one wonders i� he is not hoping that this weekend will see his charges put to the test. The defending Pour West basketball champions, the Kodiaks would like nothing better than to repeat their performance of 1972, if for no other reason that this year the western champion advances to a Dominion final in March. Kodiaks tuned up for the weekend set with a convincing 95-45 conference victory over Medicine Hat Community College Wednesday evening. The gals managed to complete the sweep by sneaking past the host Gas City gals 25-27. Kodiaks' big Three W's, Williams, Wolsey and White were instrumental in the win.  Gary Williams hit for 23 points and nine rebounds while Curt Wolsey led all scorers with 24 points. Dwight White canned 17. Bruce Millis grabbed off 11 rebounds as the Kodiaks completely dominated the game. They took 38 rebounds off the boards and were stingy to the extent they had but three turnovers in the whole game. They hit 52 per cent from the field and 75 per cent from the foul line besides picking up 24 interceptions. In the gals game, Deb Ransom managed eight points for the Kodiettes while Judy Mc-Nab came up with 13 rebounds.

Canucks win easily CALGARY (CP) - Warren Cook and Dale Eloschuk each scored twice Thursday night as Calgary Canucks romped to an easy 10-1 victory over Drum-heller Falcons in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Greg Smith, Joe Delure, Brian Miller, Mark Lomenda, Roger Lamoureux and Stu Younger rounded out the Canucks' tally as they took period leads of 3-0 and 6-0. Ryan Wecker's goal for the .Falcons came at 4:40 of the third period. TORONTO (CP) - Canadian Football League owners, in the final day of bargaining at their annual meeting, were expected to stage a showdown today on two Eastern Football Confer' ence decisions and possibly discuss expansion into the United States. < The EFC playoff format and an expanded schedule to 16 games from 14 were high on the agenda. And while expansion is not on the agenda at all, CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur said Thursday there was a possibility the item could, be introduced under new business. John Bassett, owner of the EFC's Toronto Argonauts who is pressing for expansion of franchises into the U.S., said the matter "was mentioned indirectly," but that no official discussion took place. The owners Thursday approved extra revenue for preseason training camps and games for veterans and increased the winner's share of the Grey Cup by $1,000 a man to $3,000, but they rejected a SAFETY GLASS!

(AP) - "Who are those other unknowns up there?" asked young Allen Miller, surveying the second-round leaders of the $160,- 000 Bob Hope-Desert' Classic golf tournament. Miller, 24-year-old sophomore pro from Pensacola, Fla., drew laughs with his question Thursday. The five names with his at the top of the list have won approximately 180 tournaments. Miller has yet to win and he had to qualify for this 90-hole tournament on Monday. Atop the list was Jack Nick-laus, whose two-under-par 70 at the Tamarisk Country club put him 10 under par at 134 for the tournament. , , Two strokes back were veterans Gay Brewer, Billy Casper and Doug Sanders. Arnold Palmer, who has 60 tournament victories, was tied for third place with Miller at 137. The six leaders played 6,863-yard Tamarisk Country Club Thursday after opening rounds at 6,500-yard Indian Wells, shortest and easiest of the four courses played in the Desert Classic. Sanders and Palmer had 65 at Tamarisk, where Miller shot 67, Casper 68 and Brewer 70. The leaders moved over to 6,-911-yard La Quinta Country Club, the longest of the courses, today. They'll finish up Saturday and Sunday at Bermuda Dunes, 6,778 yards. Nicklaus, who had a 64 at Indian Wells, agreed that the real leaders of the tournament can't be identified until they've played all four courses. "Anybody who has played Indian Wells should be in better shape than the others," he said.. Toronto's George Knudson also had a 70 Thursday and a 36-' le score of 141, just seven strokes behind the leader. tion to the $3,000 for the winner, increased for the losers to $2,-000 from $1,500. Along with the expanded championship money, the CFL meetings agreed to pay veteran players $20 a day during the pre-season training camp, half of which will be repaid the club if the player makes the team. Those not surviving the cut will not be asked to return any portion of the expense money. The business of deciding what constitutes a veteran player was left up to the individual clubs, Gaudaur said. Any player excluded from the category, who feels he should have been included, can carry his complaint to the CFL office. CLUBS TO DECIDE "The point is, the clubs have the right to judge the manner in which the rookies are handled," Gaudaur said. "And the players' association has agreed to that." discussion on the EFC adopting a sudden-death playoff system, endorsed by the Western Conference last season after conducting its post-season games under that format for the first time, was deferred to today so Eastern clubs could "more thoroughly consider some financial information" made available Thursday for the first time. The EFC continued to play a sudden-death semi-final and two-game total-point final. And if Ralph Sazio, general manager of the Grey Cup champion Hamilton Tiger-Cats has his say, the old system will be retained in the East. Pronghorns in Calgary Voth nears scoring title LETHBRIDGE <<,..._�i Corner 5th Avenue, 4th Street S. Phone 327-1581 EDMONTON (Special) -Leona Voth of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns has nearly secured the scoring championship in the Canada West University Athletic Association Women's Basketball League, with only two weeks of the schedule left. Although Lethbridge is 11 games behind the leader for the pennant, Voth has maintained her lead in the scoring race. In 16 games, she has 229 points for a 14.3 average. Lorna McHattie of the University of Victoria Vikettes is second with 181 uoints in J.4 games (or a 12.9 average. Liz Silcott of the University of British Columbia Thunderettes and Heather Witzellof the University of Saskatchewan Husk-iettes follow at 12.8 and 12.1, respectively. B.C. came out of the opening February weekend with a three-game lead. Victoria and B.C. played two games each with Saskatchewan which, because of an unbalanced schedule were worth double value. Three losses by Saskatchewan ended its unbeaten streak and left, it, for standings purposes, with a 12-6 record. B.C. has a 14-0 record and Victoria is 12-4. If the double value wins were not taken into account. B.C. would rate 12-0 and Victoria and Saskatchewan each 10-3. The other three teams were not affected by double value games. Meanwhile Voth will get a chance to extend her lead in the scoring race when the Pronghorns take on U of C Dinnies in Calgary tonight and Saturday. The U of L Pronghorns men's varsity squad will also see action twice in Calgary this weekend. U of L hosts event Saturday Wrestling in the south Amateur wrestling one of the newer sports in southern Alberta that is slowly making some head-way. The sport itself is an unique one, in that it requires a high level of skill and experience combined with over-all conditioning and muscular strength. One person who will readily testify to this fact without reservations is Dr. Bert Fairbanks, a professor and wrestling coach at the University of Lethbridge. "Wrestling is an aggressive sport which requires the athlete to be in superb condition at all times," commented Fairbanks. "It demands hard work and self-discipline which ultimately means it demands a liking too," he added. Amateur wrestling has been extensively integrated in the secondary school's physical education program in nothem Alberta, but very little in the south. However, things are slowly starting to change in the south and one of the reasons could be that it has attracted some fan appeal. The fans will be glad to know that the Uuiversity of Lethbridge Pronghorns will host, for the first time ever, an invitational wrestling tournament Saturday. Under the direction of coach Fairbanks, the Pronghorns will entertain six other wrestling BERT FAIRBANKS . . . U of L coach clubs in the one-day event which gets under way at 1:30 p.m. at the U of L gymnasium. The teams visiting the city will include Calgary S.A.I.T., Calgary Mount Royal, Calgary Premiers, Cardston High School, Olds Regional College as well as the Lethbridge Community College. Competing for the local university will be second-year men, Barry Lust and Wally Russell alongside rookies, Larry Knibbs, Darryl Bosnak, John Seaman, Jim Zook, Jim Cummings, Phil Ulingworth and Bob Takaski.
